I often ask myself the same when I have enjoyed some good reporting from the US on TV or one of the many comedies such as SNL, Seth Meyer, John Oliver, Stephen Colbert etc.

It is not that the UK political scene is lacking the necessary ingredients!

Maybe it’s me, maybe it’s my iPad, but I found this almost impossible to read in the format presented. Hyperlinks, moving images scattered about, plus an overly stylish manner.

I got to the end anyway, and thought ‘meh’.

I am afraid the layout got the better of me and I gave up half way through.

@Jim Jones - are you aware that you can often improve the layout / presentation by clicking on the icon in the left hand end of the addressbar (in Safari)?

Ah. I read it in 'reader' mode which I -always- do as a matter of course these days when I just want to read something.

I didn't realise I was inflicting horror on everyone. Yes, it's utterly awful isn't it...

Every day’s a school day here. Thanks, looks better now.

But still ‘meh’. I knew the internet is a jungle, this is about just another creature out get me.

Well done Jim, I only made it half way through point 2 before I realised I really didn't care.

It's quite interesting and reminds me of two pieces of wisdom I was given by "old sweats" as I learned about systems analysis and design 50 years ago.

"The system that can't be screwed up by a determined idiot has yet to be designed"

"The technology that can't be abused has never been invented"

and also my wise old granny:

"A fool and his money are easily parted"

I got to the end and thought what was the point of that? And what’s the point of the organisation being investigated?

Is it all just click bait? Can that pay for the rent on stores?
Is it all about money laundering?

What’s the point?
